Springfield Schools Scoring Better, But Not Up to Par with No Child Left Behind


Springfield public schools are showing some modest improvement overall in reading and math test scores, but most schools remain well below the “Adequate Yearly Progress” standards required under the federal No Child Left Behind law.

 

Fewer than two-thirds of students meet the federal reading standards, and only about 75-percent are making sufficient progress in math.

 

However, Superintendent Walter Milton says those standards will soon be obsolete.

 

He expects Congress will scrap No Child Left Behind in favor of a system that focuses on “growth” from year to year, rather than meeting an arbitrary number.

 

And Milton says the district is showing growth.
